Storyline

Eight months have elapsed. Debbie has joined the Army and left the area. On his fiftieth birthday Frank saves librarian Libby from being run over and believes she is the one for him,despite her narcolepsy and interfering mother. Frank is also present when Nin,his grandmother,kills the severely disabled husband whose care has been a long-time burden to her and who revels in the relative luxury of being sent to jail and waited on. Whilst Joe is trying to persuade the heavily pregnant Karen to go away with him she goes into labour and he delivers the baby. At the christening he also gets a lingering kiss from her.

A less than happy birthday for Frank
27 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This excellent series makes a welcome return for its seventh series although it is now lacking Debbie as she has joined the army. Life on the Chatsworth Estate is as chaotic as ever; Karen is overdue to give birth, Frank has met the woman of his dreams while doing his community service and his grandmother Nin takes drastic action to deal with the disabled man she is caring for.

As one would expect from Shameless there were lots of laughs, I particularly liked the "save the library" riot and for pure shock value Nin turning homicidal. It wasn't all laughs though; Joe is still a menacing presence in Karen's life, she still can't tell whether she loves him or hates him.

I was disappointed that Debbie's departure was dealt with in one line, it is a pity that her character didn't get a proper send off although I suspect this was down to the actress being unavailable. The new character Libby the Librarian looks promising, hopefully she will hang around for a while.
